Ilka Friese

frieseMy name is Ilka Friese and I am the Managing Director & CFO at NTT DATA Germany. Currently I am leading the finance department in Germany, Austria, Denmark and Romania. As experienced financial expert I am also responsible for the topics Information Management, Corporate Real Estate and Procurement. Since 2015, I am leading the WIN Initiative (Women in NTT DATA) in Germany that aims to attract strong women to NTT DATA and to support them with their careers.
Before my position as CFO, I have held various management positions in Finance & Controlling at NTT DATA Germany, GE Capital and BMW Group.
I completed my Master of Business Administration at the University of Freiburg.
In my free time I like to work out in the nature, relax while doing yoga and enjoy good food & wine

To talk about #WomenInTech is important, because women have special skills that can lead every (IT) company to success
